Forspoken will no longer be released this year. The game has been postponed to January 24 of next year.

Square Enix and Luminous Productions announced this via a message on Twitter. As a result of ongoing discussions with key partners, we have made the strategic choice to move the launch of Forspoken to January 24, 2023.

The development team does say that the game’s development is progressing well. For example, “all game elements” would now be complete, and the development is in the “final polishing phase”.

“Thank you for your continued support and patience on this journey,” Square Enix and Luminous Productions concluded. “Your enthusiasm for the game inspires us daily and we can’t wait to share more from Forspoken with you later this summer!”

Forspoken was originally slated to release on October 11 this year, so it has been delayed for just over three months. The game is to be released on PC and PlayStation 5.
